ABOUT







Futura, Avenir, Gotham

A Typophile discussion that compares three umbilically linked type families, Futura (1927, Paul Renner), Avenir (1988, Frutiger) and Gotham (2000, Frere-Jones). The large x-height of Avenir makes it in my view incomparable with Gotham. Interview with Frutiger on the origins of Avenir.
